Public information meeting scheduled for US 12 (East State Street) reconstruction, Mauston

October 22, 2013

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) and the city of Mauston will hold a public information meeting to discuss the proposed US 12 (East State Street) reconstruction project currently scheduled for 2016.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 14 at 5 p.m. at the Mauston City Hall, 303 Mansion Street. There will be a short presentation at 5:30 p.m. The remainder of the meeting will be conducted in an open house format. The public is encouraged to attend to ask questions and provide input.

The project will reconstruct State Street (US 12) in downtown Mauston between Hanover Street and Pine Street, replacing the existing deteriorated pavement in this area. The proposed improvement includes pavement replacement, curb and gutter construction, sidewalk and terrace construction, street lighting, storm sewer modifications, and updated city utilities. The intersection of Division Street and East State Street will be reconstructed with improved lane configurations and new traffic signals. Work on Division Street will extend from East State Street to Maine Street. A detour using I-90/94 is currently planned.

Representatives from WisDOT, the engineering consulting firm of MSA Professional Services, Inc., and the city of Mauston will be available to explain exhibits and address questions on the aspects of the proposed project. Persons with information regarding privately owned utilities or structures that encroach into the projects limits and the highway right-of-way in the project area are encouraged to attend this meeting or provide comments.
